Ready for July

My summer vacation has been very busy! I managed to squeeze in some time to finish my June block of Once Upon A Time.

Once Upon A Time by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery

Then I dug through my WIPs and spent a little time working on a With Thy Needle and Thread pattern "Birds of a Feather" I started this years ago when it first came out. I love the colors and I know it will look great on a wall. The problem has been the stitching. The border seems to go on forever and I am always fussing about how the stitches look. It is on 35 count with two threads. If I were to start again I think I would only use 1 thread. I am forcing myself to make some progress today since the July Once Upon a Time will be out tomorrow.

Happy Stitching!

Saturday Morning...

I am awake. I have been for an hour because I am so excited that it is Saturday! My plans for the day are to attend a hot yoga class. That is it. There is so much potential that I can't stand it! So I thought I would make myself stop reading everyone else's blogs and update my own.

This was a very busy spring. I managed to only work on my Once Upon A Time Dampler each month. I am more than halfway done with June and hope to finish it over the next few days. My giant WIP pile is calling to me and I have had to fight daily urges to sign up for the Frosted Pumpkin's Mystery Halloween Sampler.

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend and enjoys their first day of SUMMER!
